Here are two articles from ZeroHedge presenting evidence that counters the official narrative the mainstream media rolled out literally within minutes that the news of the downing of flight MH17 hit the airwaves. My first reaction at the time was: how the heck do they know what happened before anyone even got to the crash site? Well, the initial reporting was rash to say the least.
Let’s continue to see what evidence emerges in this story and evaluate it the way government evaluates its intel (which is 80% open source!): weigh the credibility of the source and the plausibility of the information. I’m fine discounting Russia Today, for example, as low credibility, but our propaganda machines (Fox, CNN, etc.) are absolutely no better in my mind. So we are left with plausibility of information. That assessment I leave to you…
As we fast approach the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I, let us not forget that the United States got into that war because Germany sank the Lusitania with Americans on-board…problem is, Lord of the Admiralty, Winston Churchill, did all he could to put innocent Americans in harms way, even trying to trick Germany into accidentally sinking one of our vessels.
In my opinion, World War I, more than any other single event (and there are plenty of good candidates), marked the beginning of the end of the American Experiment. The end of the end of it might well be World War III. If the plan really is to deliver the coup de grace via a full-on hot war, I would guess a Democrat is slated to win the White House in 2016…only a Democrat could get away with it, just as one observer astutely pointed out only a Republican president will be able to pull off grabbing our guns.
In case you don’t know the significance of World War I and why we got involved in it, this fascinating interview offers a clue…

This is a must watch press conference from eastern Ukraine about the stalling tactics of the west in beginning the flight MH17 investigation. This directly contradicts MSM
As I said, there is some disgruntlement even in western Ukraine as men are conscripted to fight their countrymen in the east. Here is the mother of a conscript protesting in the west.
The US government (specifically, Department of State spokeswoman Jen Psaki) says west Ukraine’s aggression toward east Ukraine is justifiable based on Kiev’s right to maintain Ukraine’s “territorial integrity.” I would argue that “territorial integrity” is not a justification to prevent secession. In the US, for example, those who argue in favor of Lincoln’s right to force the south to remain in the Union almost always cite ending slavery not maintaining territorial integrity. In other words, it’s a humanitarian argument and not based on the Law of Nations which expressly allows for secessions such as Crimea’s and potentially east Ukraine’s.
On a side note, the west calls east Ukraine’s resistors “separatists” yet Russian press calls them “federalists.” There is definitely some linguistic spin in this…as my 8-year-old son tells me, “Separatists are the bad guys!” I asked him how he knew and he said he learned it from Star Wars. Ha! I’m not reading too much into it, just thought that was interesting. But it does actually matter if they are simply fighting for a confederation rather than a separation. My guess is that at this point there will never be a Ukrainian federation to include the east, but it might have been a reasonable compromise at one point.
Here is the document I referred to that explores the necessity of war to gain society’s consent to coercive government: Report from Iron Mountain
Here is something on Churchill and the Lusitania false flag which got the United States to join World War I for no valid defensive reason: False Flag at Sea.
And in case you don’t think western advisers would ever recommend a false flag to start a desired war, check this out from the esteemed Washington Institute for Near East Policy. In case you haven’t heard of this organization, here’s a line about it from Wikipedia: This Institute’s “research is timely and policy related, and its recommendations have been adopted by policymakers.”
On the show a caller reminded me of the Iranian airliner flight 655 that was shot down by the USS Vincennes in 1988. I missed the reference but here’s the wiki entry: Iran Air Flight 655.
Here‘s the entry on Korean Air Lines Flight 007 that was shot down by the Soviets as a spy plane in 1983. You’ve probably heard of that one, but not of the Korean Airlines Flight 902 that was forced to land in 1978 by the Soviets, again suspecting Korean Airlines was using passenger planes on spy missions. Here‘s the wiki entry on that.
